A perfect place to celebrate my husbands birthday. We went for all of the table side presentations. The Caesar salad, rack of lamb and cherries jubilee. What fun! Can't get service like this anywhere else. Beautiful patio and pool to look out at. Don't miss it for those special occasions!

Judging by the other reviews and our recent experience, dining at Anton & Michel's is very hit or miss. It shouldn't be at these prices (the wine list especially so at three times retail, and the corkage $25), Our experience in a nutshell: very good Rack of Lamb and incompetent service.
The restaurant was almost empty, but three of the four occupied and too close together tables were adjacent to each other, which not only emphasized the lack of custom but resulted in in heavy traffic; and the waiter both presumptuous and, other than trying to empty the wine bottle as quickly as possible, inattentive.

The only restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea w/ a view (Court of the Fountains) and consistent fine dining, period. Brothers Bert and Mark Simpson, respectivly maitre d' and chef, have been w/ owner Tony Salameh for many years because all three understand what a fine dining restaurant experience should be. And where do you find table side preperation these days? We travel everywhere for great meals and can count on two hands where salads, etc. are prepared this way. There are no variables at A&M just consistancy. If you are in Carmel for only one meal A&M should be your luncheon or dining spot which will not disappoint.

Anton and Michel is the ideal choice for a romantic dinner or for that special celebration. The dining room is very attractive with windows facing a courtyard. The food is Continental and everything is outstanding. At our recent dinner we had the rack of lamb and the duck- both of which were perfect. Beyond the food Anton and Michel has a renowned wine cellar with not only some of the most sought after vintages but also a great selection of lesser known wine from around the world. Lastly, but not least, the service is of the very highest quality. I certainly plan to return to Anton and Michel's.

I had an early lunch here back by the windows and watched the fountains run and the people wander through. A great experience, with excellent service and food. Can't recommend highly and reasonable prices as well.
